Vendredi de Vocabulaire – La Semelle

I’m not sure where I first encountered this word, or even if I’ve encountered it more than once, but I found it interesting and thought I’d share. La semelle refers to the sole of a shoe (une chaussure). It’s not, however, the same as the sole of your foot (ton pied). That would be une plante (which also means plant, as you probably could guess). Interestingly, un talon can be either the heel of your foot or of a shoe—but not a hawk’s talon.
